No matter how much you love your job, everyone would be lying if they said they'd never thought about what it would be like to just... not have to work at all.

Well, one man has got it sussed and it doesn't even involve winning the lottery or finding out he's been left a fortune by a long-forgotten deceased family member.

No, he's simply going to live with his mom until he's 50 and avoid working a full-time job that way.

Anthony Voulgaris, a university student from Melbourne, Australia, has revealed his unusual life choice comes down to the fact that he doesn't believe work is 'for him'.

Watch his TikTok below: 

He told his followers on TikTok: "I'd just like to formally come on here and announce that I don’t think full-time work is for me. Yeah, personally not for me."

Anthony added: "I would like to sit here and provide reasons, but there’s not many. I just personally don’t think that it aligns with my beliefs, you know my belief system, and that you can’t force someone to believe what you believe, so yeah."

Surprisingly (or not, depending how you look at it), a lot of people in his comments were also in agreement, writing: "I don't think WORK is for me. period."

Others added: "No bc same but also how do you pay for things" and "finally someone with the same beliefs as me."

Another wrote: "personally I'm on your level, I'm fact I think I was born to be a stay at home mum/ housewife so yeah nah no work for me", while one added: "I believe in the money. I don’t believe in the labour."

Earlier in the year, Anthony had also declared that he is going to facilitate his workshy lifestyle by living with his parents until he's 50.

He said at the time: "I’m staying here as long as I can. I get free food, I get my washing done for me – that’s lucky, a lot of people don’t get that – I’m not moving out ever.

"If I can stay here until I’m 50, I will. I’m slaving off of these people and I’ll continue to do so, happily."

Quite how his mom and dad feel about that remains unclear...

And while most people probably won't still be living with their parents at the age of 50, there has been an increase in people living with their moms and dads well into adulthood in recent years.

This is down to the increased cost of living as well as house prices, rents, and mortgage rates making moving out much more difficult, particularly if a person is doing it on their own without a partner to split the bills.
